Join us anytime between 10AM and1PM to celebrate sheep and all that they provide us.  Watch a sheep get its yearly haircut!  After the sheep is shorn,  you will have the opportunity to skirt, wash, and card its fleece - a process in which wool becomes ready to be turned into warm, cozy clothing and blankets.  We will be spinning wool into yarn bracelets, felting, and a few mother sheep and their lambs will be visiting the Children's Farmyard area for you to meet!

Please register upon arrival in the McClure Center for School Programs located in the Farm Barn.  Walk-ins welcome!
